Slacks Creek

Slacks Creek, an inner northern suburb of Logan City, is 22 km south-east of central Brisbane. It is named after the stream which meanders through the suburb, joining the Logan River a little beyond the suburb's south-east limit. The creek was apparently named after William Slack, the holder of an early grazing licence.

During its rural period, which ran until the 1960s, Slacks Creek included the suburb of Springwood on the north-eastern side of the Pacific Highway.
